In response, Publix Super Markets Charities committed to donating $1 million to nonprofit relief organizations, including the American Red Cross and United Way. Delta Air Lines contributed $250,000 to the American Red Cross. The Home Depot Foundation announced a commitment of up to $1 million for immediate response and long-term recovery.

“During this difficult time, we stand ready to assist all those who are dealing with the damage left behind,” Shannon Gerber, executive director of The Home Depot Foundation, said in a release. “With the help of our nonprofit partners, we will be there to provide resources, relief and support not only in the days to come, but throughout the recovery process.”
